Are you bored of watching rom-coms and sci-fi? Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered.
Here we are with a list of Horror movies releasing in 2020, and you need not worry, all of these movies have been confirmed and mostly completed, so you won’t have to wait for long. Read on dear people, read on.
The Rental is an upcoming American horror film, helmed by Dave Franco in his directorial debut. We finally get to see Dave taking a step back from being in front of the camera and going to work behind the scenes. The movie stars Dan Stevens as Charlie, Alison Brie as Michelle, Sheila Vand as Mina, Jeremy Allen White as Josh, and Toby Huss as Taylor.
Two couples go on a weekend getaway to a beautiful seaside rental house for some R&R. The owner of the rental house seemed kind enough in the beginning, but as the trailer progresses, we get an idea of how “nice” he really is. (Not very nice, I’m afraid.) Things get ugly pretty quickly when they realize that the owner is spying on them, and well-kept secrets are exposed. Can they set aside their differences and make it out of there alive?
The Rental is all set to release on July 23 on VOD.
Nia DaCosta directs an upcoming supernatural slasher film, Candyman, which is a direct sequel to the 1992 “Candyman” and is based on the short story “The Forbidden” written by Clive Barker. Since the original Candyman was such a hit among Horror lovers, it is only fair that its sequel should find a place on the list of Horror movies releasing in 2020.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s character is the same baby Anthony that Helen Lyle saved from the Candyman in the first film. Anthony, who is now an artist, returns to the Cabrini-Green area, only to find himself haunted by Candyman, and from the looks of it, primed to become his successor.
Tony Todd appears to be back as Candyman. The main cast also includes Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Coleman Domingo and Teyonah Parris.
Candyman initially set for June 2020 was delayed due to the pandemic and is now slated for release on October 16, 2020. Read this to know more!
The Empty Man
Directed by David Prior, The Empty Man is an upcoming supernatural horror film. It stars James Badge Dale, Samantha Logan, Stephen Root, Joel Courtney, Marin Ireland, and Aaron Poole
While looking for a missing girl, an ex-police officer comes across a secretive group attempting to summon a terrifying supernatural entity. If the film really delivers, we can have a hell of a time even in the been-there-done-that horror film genre.
It’s been a long road, but The Empty Man is finally set to arrive on August 7, 2020.
Directed by Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz, Antebellum is an upcoming horror film that stars Janelle Monae, Gabourey Sidibe, Eric Lange, Jena Malone, Jack Huston, Kiersey Clemons, and Marque Richardson.
Story details for Antebellum are being kept mostly under wraps. The teaser trailer revealed two timelines; pre-Civil War (involving some form of slavery, as we see a Southern plantation), and modern times (as when Monáe’s character is shown having dinner with friends, a 911 voiceover is present throughout). The trailer seems to indicate that Monae’s character is sent into the past with a mission. The rest, however, is still shrouded in mystery.
The film was originally set to debut on April 24 but was pulled back in mid-March amid concerns about the pandemic. Antebellum will now hit theatres on August 21, 2020, and we’re really, really hoping that it proves to be a rather enjoyable watch.
I’m Thinking Of Ending Things
‘I’m thinking of ending things’, is a psychological horror film directed by Charlie Kaufman. It is based on a novel of the same name written by Iain Reid. The film stars Jessie Buckley, Jesse Plemons, Toni Collette, and David Thewlis.
In an interview with GQ about the film, Jessie said “The film touches on Loneliness, hopelessness and regret- the things that are part of the fabric of the film. “It was almost ‘Psychological torture’ is too strong, but it did have a strange effect.”
All we have to go on is a single line on the plot of the film “A young man takes his new girlfriend to visit his parents on an isolated farm. But on the way there… well, ‘something’ happens”. Well, we would be lying if we said we weren’t intrigued by this.
The movie is scheduled to be released by Netflix on September 4, 2020.
A Quiet Place II
An upcoming American horror film, A Quiet Place II is a sequel to the 2018 film, A Quiet Place. The sequel was both written and directed by John Krasinski, and stars Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe, who will reprise their roles from the first film. Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou have also joined the cast.
The events of A Quiet Place II are set almost immediately after those of its prequel, with Evelyn Abbott and her children venturing elsewhere after their farm burns down. Not much information is available on the plot despite the trailer being released earlier on. ‘A quiet place II’ is being really quiet indeed.
A Quiet Place II was initially scheduled to arrive in theatres on March 20 2020, but, as we already know, due to a certain virus wreaking havoc all over the world, that was not meant to be.
In April this year, Paramount announced the new release date for A Quiet Place II, September 4, 2020.
Larry, a 2017 horror short film written and directed by Jacob Chase became popular, and Focus Features hired Chase to write and direct a feature-length and thus Come Play was born.
Newcomer Azhy Robertson stars as Oliver, a lonely young boy who feels different from everyone else. Desperate for a friend, he seeks solace and refuge in his ever-present cell phone and tablet.
When a mysterious creature uses Oliver’s devices against him to break into our world, Oliver’s parents (Gillian Jacobs and John Gallagher Jr.) must fight to save their son from the monster beyond the screen.
The movie has moved from its July 24 spot on the calendar to October 30, 2020, which is just close enough to keep it on our list of Horror movies releasing in 2020.
